Paying Back Your Student Loan
There is often much misunderstanding about when and how student loans are paid back so here are some important points to remember. For a full understanding it is best to contact your LA or the Student loans company (SLC)
- Student loans are not paid back until you are earning more than £15,000 a year before tax (Currently);
- You will not have to start repaying your loan until the April after you have finished or left your course;
- The amount you repay each month will be directly proportional to your income above £15,000 a year;
- If you are self employed your repayments will be collected through the tax self-assessment system;
- INTEREST IS APPLIED to your student loans. However the interest is a rate linked to inflation so ‘technically’ you aren’t paying anymore back that you loaned.
- If you started your studies in 2006 or later, the Government will write off any part of your student loans left unpaid 25 years after you leave your course.
